Gran Paradiso: Alta Via 2 Trek and Day Walks (Cicerone Guides) Reviews
A very detailed guide-book not only for the Alta Via 2 but also lots of sidetrips and day-walks. We hiked the whole of it following the southern extension over several high passes with stunning views of Gran Paradiso, Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and Matterhorn in September / October 2011 under perfect conditions. There was no problem in way-finding and the described route is absolutely feasable for experient walkers (no technical climbing!). It's easily reached from Torino but without the crowds of other famous places in the Alps. An excellent book and a great walk!
I've just read this book. It is actually the best "cookbook" how to spend holidays trekking in Gran Paradiso. Very well written, with details, maps and photos. Last but not least - its format and plastic cover make it easy to take it with you for the trekking.
Did the AV2 trek with the 3-day optional route. Accurate guide (with few web updates on Cicerone site). Author graciously answer email questions.
